• DNA Restriction Fragment Mapping

    Posted on Dec 27, 2018

    Restriction endonucleases recognize and cut DNA at unique nucleotide sequences. Delineation of these cleavage sites provides a map of the DNA, produces characteristic sizes of the fragments as detected on an agarose gel, and allows for the preparation of pieces of DNA to be used for making new vector or plasmid constructs.
